  1. I was reading through this thread too quickly and thought you were talking about Darby O'Gill and the Little People.
  2. I think I've read that the Skrulls in general is a situation like Quicksilver where both Fox and Marvel can use them. The Super Skrull character, however, belongs to Fox.
  3. Yes. I think they got him back at the same time they got Punisher and Blade back.
  4. I'm not saying you're wrong, I just thought it was interesting. Since Walton Goggins is in his stable of actors now, and since he was so successful with adapting Elmore Leonard for Jackie Brown, I kind of wish Tarantino had directed an episode of Justified. He directed an episode of CSI, so why not? QT directing a scene between Olyphant and Goggins could have been awesome.
  5. I saw an interview with Tarantino where the interviewer asked him what he would say if someone told him that Jackie Brown was their favorite Tarantino movie. QT said that if he was being snotty he would say that person isn't a Tarantino fan, because it's the least Tarantino-like movie in his filmography.
  6. I was just about to mention this. I loved the movie. I'm ignoring some things I would normally nitpick because of nostalgia and excitement, but overall it was awesome. I have to say, though, I was super disappointed when the actors from The Raid showed up, I immediately thought we were about to get one of the coolest fight scenes in a Star Wars movie ever, and then... nothing. But, yeah, overall it was great. I can't wait to see what Rian Johnson does since I'm a big fan of his movies (especially Brick).
  7. I'm definitely more excited about Batman vs. Superman than I was a week ago, but I'm not sure where I stand on Suicide Squad. I think it looks good. I'm sure I'll see it in theaters and enjoy it. But the more I see of it, the more I am convinced it will be exactly like the Assault on Arkham animated movie -- and I'm not sure how I feel about that.
  8. Apparently the guy we saw in season one was just a random Drowned Priest. It wasn't actually Aeron Greyjoy, so we still haven't see him yet.
  9. I think the fact that Melisandre came across Thoros in the show and learned about how he resurrected Beric Dondarrion coupled with the fact that she just showed up at The Wall right before Jon Snow's stabbing makes it very possible that she will bring him back to life. Thoros said he never really, truly believed in the Red God and that he was at his lowest point. But he said the old words over the corpse of Dondarrion and he came back to life. You have to think Melisandre is in a similar place with how everything with Stannis went and how she apparently misread all of her visions and is responsible for the death of Shireen. But she can still say the words over Jon Snow's body, and when he comes back to life her faith can be renewed and she will have possibly saved the real Azor Ahai.
  10. I've seen people speculating online that Mack and Bobbi are secretly working for S.W.O.R.D. I noticed during Mack's rant how he specifically mentioned how he was fed up with all this "alien crap", so that could definitely be it.
  11. My thinking is that -- given his history -- Bogut probably won't be healthy for all of the playoffs. If he's hurt and misses a series, then the Warriors become very vulnerable. People don't talk enough about how important Bogut is to the way they want to play, and not just defensively. He allows them to play inside-out on offense and he's also a great passer. I just don't trust him to stay healthy, so I don't know if I can go all in on their chances to win it all even if they are my favorite team to watch this season.
  12. So... They just said on NBA TV that Rose isn't playing tonight and may be getting an MRI. Is he hurt again?
  13. I recently watched The Equalizer with Denzel, and I enjoyed it more than I thought it would. It got me to thinking, though. What are the best movies that have a badass unstoppable hero? We're seeing action movies like The Equalizer and the Taken movies lately, but what are some other examples? What movies have a hero who just runs through the opposition -- even when they get to the end of the movie they still just completely destroy whoever the big bad is? I also don't care about genre. It can be an old school action movie, revenge flick, superhero movie, western, etc. Just looking to get everyone's opinions on what some of the best examples of this are.
  14. You can't discredit Harden because he gets a lot of points from free throws. Drawing fouls is a skill -- one that he happens to be the best in the league at doing. He's been getting to the line like that consistently for a while now and he knocks them down. But really just look at the fact that Houston is 4th in the ridiculously loaded West right now, and a lot of that has been with Howard out. That's why I said Harden is having an MVP-type season. He has carried them and is having a really great statistical season, but they're also winning a lot. I really don't think best SG in the league is even debatable right now. Second best is where it gets interesting with Monta, Butler, Thompson, Wade (when healthy), etc.
  15. Monta is having a pretty good year so far, but let's not get crazy. Harden is the best SG in the league, and I don't think it's all that close. He is having a legit MVP-type season.
  16. I had them pegged as the team to end the Warriors streak, but I was much more impressed by the win over a rested Spurs team. To play into triple OT, without your best defender, after playing that physical of a game against GS the night before. Wow. I agree that it was a really impressive and gutsy performance by Memphis. However, it should probably be noted that the Spurs didn't have Parker or Leonard for the game. So the Spurs were rested, but they were still short-handed.
  17. That's right, people. Godzillamas is real. Get on board.
  18. Lesser of two evils. I was dreading the Joachim Phoenix version of Dr. Strange. Great actor but has taken the turn on Batshit Insane Boulevard lately. I may be alone, but I was actually more interested in seeing Phoenix get the role. I like Cumberbatch. I love Sherlock. But he's in every movie in every genre, and we can kind of tell what he'll be like as Strange. Phoenix as a superhero with the potential to interact with the guys in the Avengers? That was more interesting to me.
  19. I think if anything this is a coaching/system issue. Or rather Riley or Spo should've had a talk with Wade at some point to make it clear he needed to be the third option on offense and that they were going to be highlighting Bosh more. I mean, we all know LeBron is an unselfish player who is more than willing to pass. This just shows that even though they made four Finals in a row and won two titles, they could've been even better if they had tweaked the system to make Bosh a more prominent player alongside LeBron. And as for making room for LeBron to work in the post and forcing Bosh outside, in the times that Cleveland's offense has looked good this season, they do make an effort to get Love touches in the post early. Would the Heat have been better with Wade coming off the bench a la Manu in San Antonio? Have another shooter in the starting lineup and then have Wade run the second unit.
  20. Are we really supposed to buy that Laurel is going to eventually replace her sister -- who fought for her life and was trained as an assassin for years -- as Black Canary when her training consists of boxercising in her free time after her day job as a lawyer? But, hey, at least we know she's super angry and driven.
  21. So... Davis and Asik apparently combined for 40 points, 34 rebounds, and 14 blocks tonight. Yeah. That's a pretty good start. I agree with you, though, that the backcourt is going to be the biggest question mark.
  22. From Marvel.com: And also, concerning Strange: I wonder how the introduction of parallel dimensions could factor into the other upcoming movies.
  23. Looking ahead to the Inhumans movie, I wonder who they'll cast as Black Bolt. I mean, how many actors that you would want as a lead in a big movie will want to play the part with almost no dialogue?
  24. So will Civil War just be contained in the one Captain America movie? Or is this probably something that will last until Infinity War starts?
  25. I don't know that the Aldo shots after the bell matter that much since Mendes eye-poked and crotch-shotted him throughout the fight. I'd say it kind of evens out.
